The Integrated program that we started this year has expanded to include nearly 100 hours of instructions and training on all aspect of the Real Estate Business; 60 hours of which are Live and Interactive with both Kevin Ahearn and myself, Key Yessaad.

 

In order for us to continue to grow and to thank our participants we have launched a Paid Referral Program – and it is quite simple: Refer a Broker who signs up for our yearly Ongoing Training Program and we will send you $200 once they join.

 

You don’t have to sell them on the program all you have to do is ask them to attend a Sneak-a-Peak Session with us and let them experience it. Visit this URL and learn about the program: http://www.liveinteractivetraining.com/referral. Remember that a One-Year Training Program is only $249 a month for the whole office, not per agent, for the whole office – a Program that many agencies use as a way to train, retain, and recruit new agents and help them build a solid foundation for their Real Estate Career.

Which Personae in you is running your Real Estate Business?

Michael Gerber shares in his book, The E-Myth Revisited, that each Business person who goes on to open a Business is made up of three (3) personas: The Entrepreneur, The Manager, and The Technician.

 

Most of you already understand the Entrepreneur and the Manager; The Technician is the trade that you have; for example you are a Baker who decides to open a Bakery – the technician in you knows everything about being a baker and has years of experience in it. The equivalent in Real Estate is an agent who goes on to open a Real Estate Brokerage.

 

Michael shares this nugget of truth: Every person who goes into business for themselves is actually three-people-in-one: The Entrepreneur, The Manager, and the Technician. The Problem of running the business becomes compounded when each personality wants to be the boss – but none of them wants to have a boss! Ponder that thought.

The Skills of your Trade are not the same as the Talents of Running a Business

Posted by Kevin Ahearn on June 20, 2013 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

The skills of a particular trade help you develop the technician within; if you spend 3 years at a technical school learning the trade of becoming an Electrician, then you hope to get a job working for a business that offers those skills – that schooling does not prepare you to run a business that offers electric repairs and installation.

 

Entrepreneurs start facing challenges when they confuse their Technical Skill with the Running of a Business that offers those Technical Skills. Being a good Real Estate Agent with the skills of helping Buyers and Sellers does not automatically graduate one to running a Real Estate Brokerage. You must bring a Business Mindset to your Business and expand your skills past your trade technical skills.

 

Michael Gerber, in his book the E-Myth Revisited, calls this confusion a Fatal Assumption; and he writes it this way: ‘The Fatal Assumption that many Small Business Owners commit is: if you understand the technical work of a business, you understand a business that does that technical work.’
